Design of the foam in place splint
U. S. Army Medical Biomechanical Research Laboratory, 1965 - Technology & Engineering - 6 pages
The design and development of a foam in place emergency splint for field use is described. The splint pack is comprised of a two component polyurethane foam resin system contained within a cushion backed plastic film envelope. In use, the foam components are mixed within the package and the envelope applied to the fractured limb. Within several minutes the foam hardens to form a well contoured weight bearing splint.
